BO-beau kitchen + garden Ratings and Reviews
The four of us dined on a Sunday evening around 7:30 and had the patio seating almost to ourselves. It was a lovely San Diego quiet Evening in the garden. Two of us had the skirt steak that was excellent, one had the Mussels and really enjoyed them and the last diner, the salmon which was superb. The menu is not necessarily a foodie menu but the plates we had were really quite good.
The service was good and the front desk folks were really friendly. Overall we had a lovely experience at BO-beau kitchen + garden.
My first time here. Love the ambiance. Food and service were also solid. Fish of the day was yellowtail and cooked to perfection.
Odd thing was that open table made it seem like the place would be packed based on limited reservation slots open. However when I got there it was 60 percent full the whole time. Maybe they didn't have enough staff? I would call the restaurant if OpenTable is booked out.
Went to Bo-Beaus for Mother's Day brunch. Menu was limited with very few egg options. Took 5 minutes after being seated for anyone to come to our table. Our food was okay. Nothing exceptional. Heard a lot of I am sorries from wait staff for slow meal delivery to wrong dishes delivered to incorrectly cooked food. Not planning a return visit.
Loved it! I had forgotten we'd been there before years ago with my sister but I'll blame that on pregnancy brain. All the food we ordered was delicious!!! I seriously "licked" ever plate clean. A must order are the Brussels sprouts!!! I ordered the beet salad and grilled salmon & my hubby ordered their beef bourgignon (sp?) but they were both excellent and so were our drinks!!! I thought the atmosphere was lovely and was a bit worried about the seating being outside, but it's San Diego and it was perfect. It wasn't too cold at all. We will definitely head back there again on future date nights.
This was a second visit and sadly disappointing. First time was fabulous...this time all three meals were mediocre. I had to send my steak back to the kitchen twice as it was too rare, then I settled for over cooked. The brussel sprout appetizer is fabulous, yet we won't be going back. Too pricey for mediocre and overpriced wine/cocktails.
While dining outside was a tad on the cool side it offered a quiet place to hold a decent conversation. We totally enjoyed the "famous" Brussel sprouts for an appetizer and all thought our entrée was the best. Our selections ranged from stew to steak and tacos. Our waitress was efficient, friendly and courteous.
Came here on vacation with my wife and 3 children. Food was very good, ate outside and appreciated the heaters and blankets. Brussel sprout appetizer was huge and we couldn't possibly eat it all. I had the paprika chicken and it was fantastic. Kids checked out the bus, but their reaction was that it was kind of gross. It could stand to be vacuumed or mopped. Overall a good night!
The food was pretty good. The Brussels sprouts were amazing, however I wish the server would have told us how big an order was and we wouldn't have ordered two for our party of four. My husband's mussels in a curry sauce tasted wonderful. My steak was just okay.
The restaurant was very nice. I tried the chicken and waffles. The portions were perfect. Just enough to get you full, the chicken pieces however were overdone making them dry and the waffles were so hard they felt like bricks ! The waitress was kind to bring some new waffles. My husband and son enjoyed their food, that's why I didn't give the food a lower score.
We have been going here for years, and with a few exceptions, the food has been good. One problem, we like something and soon it is off the menu. Maybe there has been lots of chef changes. The other recent problem is, the menu has become over-priced. Main courses, appetizers etc are way up. It now costs $30. for two soups and two beers! Add the cost of entrees and you are talking $75-80 without tip! Too much for what you get. The service is always good, though.
Very good food with one possible caveat. The brussel sprouts as an appetizer were amazing, as is mentioned in many reviews. We were able to order it with the meat on the side as we had two vegetarian members. The waitress was pleasant, but perhaps overworked. The attention wasn't too prompt- one of our dinners had to wait a fairly long time for her tabasco sauce, which was initially doled out in a very small dose. However, the waitress made good recommendations as to food and wine. Two diners had the salads, which were good if unremarkable. Another diner ordered the flatbread pizza, which looked delicious. I ordered the Mussels and Fries in curry sauce, which was an incredible dish. Hours later, I was sick. Not sure if it was the curry or the mussels- or perhaps a reaction to the one glass of cocktails that I had. I've never had mussels before so your experience may be better!
We went to BO-Beau for our anniversary and it was fabulous! The food was stellar - the brussel sprouts are to die for - and the ambiance was great. When it got chilly, the server brought out a blanket so I stayed warm throughout dinner. We had a fabulous evening! And the downtown La Mesa area is great to wander around before or after a meal.
